    Well, the city didn't clear off the rink tonight at the park, not surprised. So we had to shovel it if we wanted to play. Thankfully, after we were about 1/3 down, some random guy that lived nearby saw us and brought down his snowblower to help. We thought that was pretty awesome.

    After splitting into two teams, we got our game on. My highlight of the night was scoring the first goal of the night overall. I think I might be up to a baker's dozen in about 15-16 years. The teams each won a game; lots of fun. Cannot wait until next year's games.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    This one is even more complicated than most, but never mind.

    Well, as expected, I'm as sore AF. Glad I have tomorrow off.

    Not doing anything for the Superb Owl. Normal church-going, and then planting my butt on the couch.

    Good morning Lodge. Heading to church, actual church, this morning. We have a new priest and today is his first service. The past six months have been a bit tumultuous there, with the former priestís supporters going a bit crazy, so I want to be there this morning to show my support for the new guy. My folks are driving down as well and weíre going to lunch. Not sure what Iím doing for the game. My friend whose house I go to hasnít texted to let me know to go there. Not sure if I should reach out or not. Not sure if I want to go out to watch, as I really want to watch This Is Us right after it. Decisions, decisions.

    Not doing anything for Superb Owl. House is a disaster so can't invite anyone. The people we used to do things with moved to Alabama. (??!!) You might ask why a northern family who has intelligent, critical thinking skills moved to... well, you get it. They have 2 kids going to college down there. From what I am hearing, pretty sure I would not make it past 1 month living there. Either I would be arrested for murrrrderrrr or someone would kill me.

    We're watching the Super Bowl with a bunch of Patriots fans this year, was with the same group last year and was really fun. Several are originally from the Boston area (ex-Pats? ) and moved here with mother mining. Really fun group and it's especially fun to watch the SB with those who have a rooting interest. I bet it's fun to watch a SB and have a rooting interest; it's been a long dam time since I've been able to experience that.

    I've never experienced it. I'm 34. The only time a football team I have ties to has won it all is when the CRHS Cardinals won state. I was 6 months old.

    Fun game. Truly didn't give a crap who won.

    Be careful what you wish for. As you know, in a way, the heartbreak is very difficult.

    Oh I've experienced the ultimate heartbreak. I was at the 1989 championship game between Minnesota and Harvard. Yes I was only six, but I remember it clear as a bell ringing 10 feet away. The Gophers and North Stars were my jam. When the Stars left just three years later, all hope was lost. Then 2002 and 2003 came along.

    Good Morning Lodge!

    This is when I am happy Ftb is a nothingburger to me. Spent the day, night and into the wee hours of the morning correcting papers. Stopped for dinner, watched a bit of the game, had a miniscule glass of red wine (yassssssssssssssss!!!- home vintage from a friend, I looooove the taste of wine and missed it- I can actually drink this without getting violently ill) and realized I have no earthly idea about Ftb. Men who are huge, wear pads so they can bang into each other and all sorts of weird rules about who is eligible to catch it, hit people. Some people seem to be able to blow each other up, others you treat like basketball weenies. Went back to correcting.

    With all the insanity of the demo, insurance, etc I was behind the 8 ball for correcting. Finished at a bit past 2AM. All caught up. Instead of feeling frustrated like Lucy in the chocolate factory, I felt a sense of accomplishment. Done is done. I have until Tues before things are submitted again unlike when I was doing the NP thing and I would awake to a folder full of labs and messages like I never started.

    God is good.

    I've experienced it a couple of times in my team's 21 year history. I may have only been 1 year old when the Colts skipped town, but I still hate them. Happy to have the Ravens now.

    The first time I had a rooting superbowl interest was fun. In 2000 my bf at the time signed up for a room in the dorm so we could have a super bowl party. I had all kinds of purple and black decorations from a care package my parents sent me. I may have been the only Ravens fan, but my friends were cheering with me, since I cared. Then, a group shows up to the room that assumed they could use it (they normally had club meetings there), even though they didn't sign up. They were all cheering for the Giants. We shared the room and the food, but it was kind of awkward.

    Good Morning, Lodge!

    Home sick today. Actually sick, not Super Bowl sick. Most of you would be glad as I have no voice and cannot talk. It is not strep. They don't know what it is. Just lots of rest.

    That early 90s stretch was rough for me (minus the Twins). North Stars/Bills 5 combined title chances....ugh.

    Howdy Lodge. It's Beanpot Monday. I know all of you could not care less about it, but it's something I look forward to every year, despite crippling heartbreak, so please ixnay on the comments. We have the second game, hopefully the first semifinal doesn't go into OT as I'd like to get home before midnight. Not going to drive in as it will be less expensive to take a cab home than spend half my paycheck to park at the Garden. Bolting work at 4:45, taking the T home, dropping off my backpack, changing clothes, taking the T back to North Station and then grabbing a bite before heading into the game.

    I fly to NYC tomorrow morning so I'm glad I'm not missing a parade.

    Hope you feel better soon!
    Factoid- all but 2% of laryngitis symptoms are viral. Sore throat with nasal congestion, other resp sx is rarely bacterial. Some of the viral stuff is worse than any strep symptom wise and it is slower to go away.

    THis always boggles my mind. The cost to park is pretty much what you pay for a ticket. I usually park at Sullivan and take the T in
